Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

A fully operational version of the Resource Center for
Cyberculture Studies is now up and running:


The Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies is an online,
not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to research, study,
teach, support, and create diverse and dynamic elements of
cyberculture. Collaborative in nature, RCCS seeks to establish and
support ongoing conversations about the emerging field, to foster a
community of students, scholars, teachers, explorers, and builders of
cyberculture, and to showcase various models, works-in-progress, and
on-line projects.

In the future, the Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies hopes to
sponsor a number of collaborative projects, colloquia, symposia, and
workshops. Presently, the site contains a collection of scholarly
resources, including university-level courses in cyberculture, events
and conferences, and related links. Further, the site features an
extensive annotated bibliography devoted to the topic of cyberculture.
Finally, the site includes "conversations/collaborations," an online
listing of scholars researching various elements of cyberculture.


Since its initial launch in January 1997, RCCS has developed two
new major features. The first is "Conversations/Collaborations."
Here, visitors are invited to browse through the research interests
and undergoing projects of a number of scholars, researchers, and
instructors affiliated directly and indirectly with the field of
cyberculture. Moreover, visitors are encouraged to contribute
their own entries, listing their interests and contact information.

The second new feature is called "Internet Interviews." This
section includes a list of links to online interviews with a
number of digerati. The list includes Nicholas Negroponte,
Allucquere Rosanne (aka Sandy) Stone, Sherry Turkle, and Gregory

Feel free to circulate this announcemen
as far and wide as you wish.
